Eyewear's Top Songs of 2012: #6 'Best of Friends' by Palma Violets

Forget the Vaccines.  The most exciting guitar band in the UK now (no, not more landfill indie) is likely the Palma Violets - they only have one single out, really, but the NME hype machine is chugging overtime on them.  Okay, but this time it is deserved.  Fully fresh, and yet resonant with a variety of traditional tropes as if plucked from The Smiths, The Ramones and The Replacements, 'Best of Friends' manages to become, in its classic 3 minutes and thirty-three seconds, one of the best indie guitar songs of the 21st century.  Full stop.
